Winter Bass Fishing Techniques

Fish Undercover

Vegetation is also a big favourite of the bass in any lake in winter. Vegetation is always warmer and provides them with a safe haven. As such, you should locate a body of underwater vegetation or a vegetative bank and then deliberately cast your line into it, skimming the bait as low as possible in the water and then repeating the technique as outlined above in the section about fishing deep.

There is one thing that you should bear in mind when choosing to fish vegetation though. You should always use a weedless lure. If you use a wedded one then you will get tangled in the vegetation and would undoubtedly end up losing the lure to the water. This can be frustrating and would interrupt your rhythm. A torpedo or frog is perfect for this and will bring you the greatest chances of success.
